Well, that's what happens when you read too much about the same topic...

Why not try and read a book that has little romance? Something more actiony? Cause when you read so many relationship/school/friend based books....they start geting predictable.

Here's a short list of books I have really enjoyed, I'll have to restrain myself... :) I've read so many.

The books of Pellinor (the naming, the riddle, the crow, the singing) by Alison Croggon are amazing!

Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan are great if you want to laugh.

Check out all of Joan Bauer's books!

I love all of the books by Tamora Pierce as well :)

Hope that helps!

It's kind of a funny story by Ned Vizzini is amazing. If you have the money, I suggest you get from a bookstore or lend it from the library.

You should try reading "Beautiful Boy" by David Sheff. It's a story about a father's journey with his meth addicted son. It starts from childhood till present-day. You sort of have to pull yourself to read through the medical parts but it's really worth it~

the maximum ride series is realy good. if you are into manga you should read futer diary,moon phase, and dragon eye and hayte the combat buttler and hayate cross blades. i like all the books i just mentiond. they are more of fantasy action type books.

ZOMG you have to read   'an abundance of katherines' and 'don't call me ishmael',    they're really funny, real-world type books.... abundance of katherines is about a math whiz who sucks a life who tries to make a formula for how long any couple will stay together, and don't call me ishmael is about a socially akward kid.... its just funny. READ THEM!!!! you'll laugh until you cry until you wet yourself, and laugh some more.XD somebody said books get predictable, but with these ones, its impossible to guess what'll happen next... have a nice life, and enjoy.

Books Ive been reading recently are Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Series & Merry Gentry Series. First explains itself, but there are alot of unexpected twists. The other one is about the first Sidhe royal to be born on american soil, a princess of the unseelie court. shes on the run & shes been found. :)

If you want unpredictable, read House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer. AMAZING story about this boy growing up as heir apparent to a distopian drug empire.
